Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at 9:08 PM (Europe)
We’ve got some high-profile matches on Saturday as three-time European champions Spain face Norway. 1968’s winner Italy takes on Greece, while Republic of Ireland travel to Georgia.
Can Republic of Ireland, Italy and Spain all maintain their unbeaten runs?
Let’s check out the best bets for Saturday’s UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifying games.
Georgia vs. Republic of Ireland – 10/12/19
Republic of Ireland are unbeaten in qualifying so far (won 3, drawn 2) and find themselves top of Group D. Still, they have only managed to score 6 goals in that time but have also conceded just 2. On the other hand, Georgia are second from bottom having picked up 4 points from their opening 5 games. Their only win came against bottom of the group Gibraltar and they have conceded 8 goals this campaign. Considering Georgia’s poor defensive record and Ireland’s unbeaten run, an away win is on the cards here and the odds are very attractive.
Pick: Republic of Ireland to Win – 2.20
Italy vs. Greece - 10/12/19
Italy have picked up maximum points from their 6 qualifying matches and sit 6 points clear of Finland at the top of Group J. They have conceded just 3 goals so far and have scored 18 at the other end (at an average of 3 goals per game). Greece are enduring a poor qualifying campaign which has seen them pick up just 1 win from their 6 games. As a result, they have an unhealthy goal difference of –3. Italy are the firm favorites heading into this tie and are likely to maintain their 100% record with a convincing win over Greece.
Pick: Italy to Win, Keep a Clean Sheet and Over 2.5 Goals – 3.55
Norway vs. Spain – 10/12/19
Like Italy, Spain also have 6 wins from 6 matches and sit 5 points ahead of Sweden at the top of Group F. With a goal difference of +14, they have breezed through qualifying so far and are looking unstoppable. Norway are still in contention to qualify for Euro 2020 and sit just two points off second place. After losing their opening match of the campaign, they are now unbeaten in 5 matches (won 2, drawn 3). Norway are also on a 13-game unbeaten run at home (won 9, drawn 4). Spain are likely to win the match, but Norway will put up a fight.
Pick: Spain to Win and Under 3.5 Goals – 2.05
